MEET THE TEAM
Carl Palmer, Managing Director
Carl’s construction training began with an advanced craft course at Warrington Collegiate and a joinery apprenticeship at Jude Construction. Carl has a wealth of hands on experience in the building trade, having worked for a number of large companies as well as setting up as independent contractor and building consultant. A true craftsman, Carl has even worked on luxury yachts in the South of France, before being drawn back to the attractions of Warrington.
Carl’s home town of Warrington is definitely where his heart is and he is proud to have established a well thought of Warrington building company which has been nominated for many awards over the years. His commitment to Warrington extends to his sponsorship of a range of local causes. Many of these causes are sport-related as in his youth Carl had a successful career in football, playing for Appleton Boys, Grappenhall Sports, Tetley Walkers and Crewe Alexandra Academy.
Carl understands the benefit of the personal touch and makes a point of visiting each customer at their premises. When you meet Carl, watch out for his killer moves! He achieved runner up in ‘Strictly St Rocco’s’ for dancing the Salsa, raising £15,000 for the charity.
